The driest incontinence on earth

I thought I'd had the laugh of the week on reading the Zits cartoon (18/7) about "the two parent system". But that was before I got to the bladder-bursting lines from the real bureaucrats. First there was the piece by Nick MacKenzie, highlighting that government brothel licenses are reserved for "applicants of ‘good repute’."  Then there was Metro's spokeswoman with "When a service is cancelled, that constitutes a minor delay." It give us all hope to be served by officials blessed with the driest of wit.
